BWW Interview: Tito Schipa jr. ed Ermanno Manzetti parlano dell'uscita del DVD di 'Orfeo 9'BWW Interview: Tito Schipa jr. ed Ermanno Manzetti parlano dell'uscita del DVD di 'Orfeo 9'
by Francesco Vittorino - May 27, 2015

'ORFEO 9' e un'opera rock scritta e musicata da Tito Schipa jr. ed andata in scena per la prima volta il 23 gennaio del 1970. Si tratta di uno spettacolo che utilizza il mito di Orfeo per descrivere 'l'avventura di questo tormento e rinascita tra il '68 e il 70', per usare le parole dell'autore. L'opera debutta al Sistina all'interno di una rassegna di teatro giovanile organizzata da Garinei e Giovannini, e nel 1973 ne viene fatta una versione cinematografica con i meravigliosi arrangiamenti di Bill Conti. Tra gli interpreti figurano gli allora sconosciuti Renato Zero e Loredana Berte - reduci dalla messa in scena sistiniana di 'Hair' - e Tullio De Piscopo tra i musicisti. (more...)

by Jeffrey Walker - May 25, 2015

The Lusty Month of May; like the song says: 'It's time to do a wicked thing or two!' It's May, the time when spring brings that hot-blooded, four letter word: lust. Musicals have had a steady history of lusty musical numbers. There are songs about rolling in the hay, and others extolling the virtues of different (ahem) flavors of man-candy. Some songs are paens to hot, steamy nights, and some are about what you do on those kind of nights.  (more...)

SOUND OFF Special Edition: 10 Biggest & Bloodiest Tony Awards Best Musical BattlesSOUND OFF Special Edition: 10 Biggest & Bloodiest Tony Awards Best Musical Battles
by Pat Cerasaro - May 20, 2015

Bloodshed is par for the course during Tony Awards season, especially as it reaches its peak in the last handful of weeks leading up the big annual ceremony feting theatre's best, so today we take a look back at some of the absolute most brutal and tight Tony Award races for Best Musical in history. Although comparing a group of musicals - alike as dissimilar as they may be - may be an unfair proposition in practice, there is only one way a winner is decided when the Tony Awards rolls around and it unfortunately always finds fan favorites, critical darlings and a few commercial hits vying for top honors. There can only be one Best Musical - well, except for 1960 when there were actually two mainstage entertainments given the prize; THE SOUND OF MUSIC and FIORELLO, with no less than GYPSY ending up an also-ran. Who will claim the trophy on June 7? Tune in then to see! (more...)

Loosely based on the fictitious life of Pippin the Hunchback, this musical tells the story of the young prince Pippin, Heir to the Frankish throne, who is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the un-extraordinary moments that happen every day. (more...)
